Rigid and Better Performances are expected to be seen from the iPad and iPhone Sales whereas iMac’s sales are anticipated to be lower than last quarter


Rob Cihra (Evercore Partners) forecasted sales of new iMac desktops, iPad and iPhones. Rigid performances are expected from the iPhone and iPad whereas iMac’s sales are anticipated to be lower than last quarter. According to the projections for Apple's December quarter on Thursday in anticipation of the Apple's quarterly earnings report, Cihra expects Apple to report sales of 50 million iPhones which is 35 percent increase and 86 percent growth from the previous quarter.

About Apple's newly iPad series, Cihra’s reports claims the company sold 24 million tablets in the quarter, which shows 56 percent yearly growth and a 71 percent boost from the September quarter. Cihra expects iPad Mini to be the reason for iPad lineup growth, with the sale of 10 million units during the quarter. On the contrary Mac’s sales are expected to decrease 3 percent this year compared to last year, reaching the sale of 5 million units in the December quarter.

Reports allege that Apple's roll-out of the iPhone 5 will lead to production cuts in the March quarter, where projected sales are of 39 million iPhone 5. Unless Apple decides to Launch iPhone 5S earlier, in next quarter. That is very less likely given the Apple’s usual product launching stream and trends.

Cihra has trimmed forecasted price target for AAPL stock to $750, which is 25$ down from previously forecasted price (775$). But Projections maintain Rob Cihra’s "overweight" rating for the stock.
